Tent host - Donna Rose and family (Scarlett, Berkly, Seth Rose, Anthony and Linda Roark)
This was our 3rd year at the Smoky Mt. Scottish Festival and our theme for the tent this year was honoring the memory of Convener Linville Rose. We decorated our tent with pictures of him and used his ideas of educating people about Clan Rose. Many people (approximately 35-40) came to our tent to reminisce about Linville and share stories about his enthusiasm for all things Scottish. Paul, Diane and John A. Rose helped us set up our banners while Linda and Anthony Roark helped run the tent and give out information to all those who visited. Our clan had many people participate in the clan activities and competitions:
To top it off, Clan Rose received 2nd place overall in the Clan Challenge. This is the first time we have ever placed in this clan competition! We were extremely proud and excited!
We had one new member join - Sonia Vance from Maryville, TN. Welcome Sonia!
We had 17 people sign our guest register. What an exciting festival we had! Special thanks to all those who came by the tent to talk and fellowship with us. We loved talking and seeing y'all!! Till next year!
